A pensioner from West Dorset has been jailed for smuggling thousands of pounds worth of cannabis into the UK.

71 year old Robert Coulson, from Lyme Regis, hid nearly 30 kilograms of the drug in the spare tyre of his car last year (2012).

He was coming home from a trip to Morocco when he was caught by border officers at Portsmouth Port.

Coulson has been jailed for three years and nine months for the offence.

The quantity of the Class B drug had an estimated value of £168,000.
